"Very pretty aromas of vanilla, tobacco, berry and chocolate. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft tannin and a berry, chocolate finish. Not very dense. This pales compared with the other top Pauillacs. I never thought this was a perfect wine, but it gives great pleasure.—'88/'98 Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now. 20,000 cases made."

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has an intense, garnet red color with a coppery tint and a highly refined nose, mingling attractive floral notes of lily and lilac with more complex aromas of vanilla, licorice, tobacco and chocolate, then some more mineral notes that emerge with airing.

Full on the palate, its tannin is enfolded in a stylish structure that melts into a rich array of flavors in which kirsch and blackcurrant liqueur combine with coffee, caramel and a touch of menthol.

The finish is fresh and well-balanced, pleasantly long, combining power and refinement. A classic Pauillac.
